Healthy Chicken Salad A protein-packed alternative to the normal chicken salad. This one is healthier, quick, and easy to make. I peeled my apple, personal preference, but feel free to add it unpeeled.

prep: 15 mins total: 15 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 (6 ounce) container fat-free Greek yogurt (such as Fage®)
  • ½ cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ cup diced apple
  • ¼ cup sweetened dried cranberries (such as Craisins®)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • ½ tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 ¼ cups cubed, cooked chicken
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


    Step 1

    Combine Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, celery, apple, cranberries, onion, pecans, and Dijon mustard in a bowl; stir until well combined. Mix in chicken and season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

You can use raisins instead of Craisins(R), if you prefer.
